    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Unless he has been violent with your wife or daughter, or threatened to, this isn't a domestic violence question.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I agree with Ms. Hoffman's statement. I would add, that unless she is so young that it would be dangerous to have her home alone, the court will view this as unhappiness with her new relationship as opposed to a serious concern.

    Answered . No.

    if you want to divorce your wife, you could get a child custody judgment, and, in theory, this could prohibit your wife from bringing this person around your daughter. You'd have to demonstrate why this person was a present threat of harm to your daughter. Mere suspicion wouldn't cut it - you'd need proof of some sort that the person was dangerous to her.

    But under no circumstances can you restrict who your wife can associate with, ever. The mere question is indicative of an abusive relationship. If you ever mean to get anywhere in the legal system, you must never indicate that you even thought such a thing.
